Come explore the Battleground’s 65 acres of woods and streams. Our property offers year round hiking, winter snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The Catamount Trail, which originates at the Battleground, will lead you up the mountain past a beautiful beaver pond and on to a point where you can start a trek on the Long Trail or head south to connect with the Appalachian Trail.
In the summer, our property is lush and green, explaining where the “Green” Mountains got their name. Our heated pool sits on a hill overlooking the mountainside, making it the most beautifully situated pool in the valley. It is open from June to late-September and is refreshing on a hot summer day as well as inviting on a cool Vermont morning or evening. The Battleground also offers outdoor hard top tennis courts. Families and children enjoy the playground with plenty of room to run around or pick up a friendly game of volleyball.
In the fall, the property is bright with the red hues of the maple trees and stunning yellows of the beech trees. Just the right light makes the forest around you fluorescent with color. Wander along the streams; listen to the leaves rustling under your feet and watch them dance down the streams.
In the winter, the best skiing in the East is just minutes away from the Battleground with both Mad River Glen Ski area and Sugarbush Ski Resort located one mile away. For cross-country skiing, Ole’s and Blueberry Lake cross-country ski centers are just a few miles away. The Catamount trail, which passes through the Battleground, is ideal for backcountry skiing and snowshoeing.
There is so much to enjoy at The Battleground and in the Mad River Valley. Come visit the Green Mountains!
